The stalin era a feuerbach chapter / 39 The text of The German Ideology in MEGA1 is printed in modernized German. The two-column format was not reflected in the edited text. Abbreviations are written out in full. Wherever the photographs—taken by the staff of the MEI in the 1920s—were unreadable or the manuscripts had been “damaged,” the editors generously provided their suggestions about the missing content in parentheses.

Interestingly enough, the works of Marx and Engels would not be presented together in a single volume, but rather separated into volumes one and two. Only from the third volume onward would the texts of the two authors be presented together. The planned third volume was supposed to comprise manuscripts and works written between the Deutsch-Französische Jahrbücher and the spring of 1845.

One “fair copy” (Reinschrift) consisting of 4 printer’s sheets that can be divided into another two parts. The “main manuscript” seemed to be in good order, although Ryazanov correctly emphasized that the text has no coherence within itself.
